Omar's Drive-In was a drive-in restaurant open from 1962-67 at 920 26th Street North (Carraway Boulevard, then still known mainly as Highway 31). Highway 31 was an active cruising strip in the mid 1960s with Omar's and Ed Salem's providing the food and Lassiter Mountain Dragway, a few miles north, providing the main attraction. Omar's was known for it's "Kai-Ham" sandwiches.

The location was previously a Salvatore's, and the business was closed when I-20/59 was constructed on top of the parking lot.
